Dawn Of A New Day At Banco Bradesco SA

Up to October 11, 2017, Lazaro de Mello Brandao was the chairman of the of the board of directors of Banco Bradesco SA, the second largest private bank in Brazil. The retired executive assumed the chairmanship role in 1991, following the demise of the then chairperson, Amado Aguiar. At the time of ascension to the chairmanship, Brandao was the president of Bradesco, a role he had held for 10 years. Upon being appointed to succeed Aguiar in 1991, Brandao did not relinquish his position as the president of Bradesco; He held both roles until 1999 when he stepped down as the CEO of the Osasco-based Bradesco. Brandao, however, remained in charge of the board of directors, representing the Bradesco Foundation—the controlling shareholder of Bradesco.

According to globo.com Brandao’s recent resignation was a personal decision made in the interest of Bradesco, especially its leadership. In a news event that covered his departure, the 91-year-old Brandao stressed that his stepping down would allow Bradesco to appoint a younger executive to take over the leadership of the board, and as a result, fostering the spirit of continuity and renewal, valued at the bank. Although Bradesco’s board will miss out on Brandao’s expertise and business acumen, some holding companies associated with Bradesco such as Bradespar SA will continue enjoying Brandao’s managerial proven knowledge.

Taking over from Brandao is Luiz Carlos Trabuco, who is also the serving CEO of the bank. Luiz Carlos Trabuco joined Bradesco in 1969 and was appointed the CEO of the bank in March 2009. Luiz Carlos Trabuco is currently the chairman and CEO of Bradesco. He, however, is scheduled to retire in March, and the bank is scouting for a new CEO. Bradesco, according to Luiz Carlos Trabuco, will appoint its fifth CEO from among its high-ranking executives.

The mention of the words “high-ranking executives’’ prompted journalists to keenly analyze the bank’s current leadership in an attempt to make educated guesses regarding Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s successor. Bloomberg’s Felipe Marques and Cristiane Lucchesi listed names of prospective CEOs. They include
• Mauricio Machado de Minas
• Alexandre da Silva Gluher
• Domingos Figueiredo Abreu
• Josué Augusto Pancini
• Marcelo de Araujo Noronha
• Octavio de Lazari
• André Rodrigues Cano

They are referred to as “high-ranking executives” because they are in charge of Bradesco’s critical department and subsidiaries. Cano, Minas, and Abreu are in charge of the bank’s human resources, IT, and treasury and lending departments respectively. Lazari is the head of Bradesco Seguros, Bradesco’s subsidiary in charge of its insurance business. Lazari holds the same position that Luiz Carlos Trabuco held prior to being named the CEO of Bradesco.

More on Luiz Carlos Trabuco
The executive had a modest start at Bradesco: The bank hired him to discharge clerical duties. Luiz Carlos Trabuco was only 17. In fact, he had not attended college or any other institution of higher learning. While he acquired practical skills at Bradesco, Luiz Carlos Trabuco attended Sao Paulo State University, where he pursued philosophy. He later joined Fundação School of Sociology and Politics of São Paulo, where he attained a postgraduate certificate in socio-psychology.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco has held various influential positions at Bradesco. He was, for instance, the president of Bradesco Seguros between 2003 and the time he assumed the presidency of the bank. At the helm of Bradesco Seguros, he initiated an exponential growth that saw Bradesco Seguros double in size. The subsidiary, as a result, increased its revenue contributions to its parent company by over 10 percent. As the CEO of Bradesco, he advised the bank to purchase the Brazilian branch of HSBC. While Bradesco spent $5.2 billion to accomplish the acquisition, pundits regard it as among the best inorganic growth strategies performed by the bank in the recent past.

Fashion Expression Just Beyond the Norm

Doe Deere is a Russian-born creative thinker who draws on inspiration from her younger years in Russia and subsequently her inspired teen years in New York. She states that she has always thought of herself as a creative and an ambitious individual. In fact, this ambition started young and inspired a tale she tells about discovering temporary tattoos. She wore these tattoos, showed them to everyone, and created a rather successful side business selling them to those around her. This small scale demonstration of entrepreneurship, of course, was a precursor to the launch of the popular Lime Crime brand today.

A big part of the way Lime Crime started was Doe Deere’s desire for bright, bold lipstick colors during a time period where fashion dictated that nude or pale glosses were much more the trend. She began creating a series of lively and more daring shades which, much to her amazement, began to grow surprisingly quickly in popularity. Beyond the typical blemish cover up or somewhat expected tasteful highlighting of certain features in preparation for the workplace or for special functions, Lime Crime brought a far less expected aspect of freedom and self-expression in a line of bright colors

Using this surge in popularity as a jumping off point, Lime Crime embraced their unique offerings and carried on to create mix and match makeup stylings that could quite literally change any look as one’s mood changed. These included options from a sparkly new shade for a special event to a bold lip look for daily wear that would effortlessly set one apart from the crowd. Even in consideration of all of the shock value, Lime Crime has managed to keep certain uncompromising standards: the company is certified Vegan and Cruelty-Free by PETA and Leaping Bunny.

Owner Doe Deere sees the fundamental existence of makeup as something which transitions far beyond a simple part of a woman’s everyday routine. She views it as an expression of one’s inward self, demonstrated in an exterior manner. She feels that it ties in to fashion and to the expressiveness an individual uses when creating their hairstyle, all of these things creating cohesive components of personal expression through varied forms of style. Deere, a former student of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, ignored the waves of individuals who felt that no one would be able to sell lipstick online without the obvious advantages of a counter where various colors could be tried. Instead, each of the products are tried on by employees and live chat sessions as well as other useful tech tricks of the trade are used to emulate the comfort level of the counter purchase as much as possible. Learn more:  https://websta.me/n/doedeere

This allows you to see the therapist face-to-face like you would in a regular office.

Talkspace has been a wonderful option for those with mobility issues or those with busy schedules that make it difficult to go to a local office for help.
